iOS 10.0.02

Normally, I do not update anything until the updates have been around for a while and they have fixed the issues. I decided to live dangerously  recently and update my iPad Air to 10.0.01 .  Using the home button to bring up the passcode screen was a bit of a surprise. Ooh, wow, back to clicking!  So over gestures because you can unintentionally gesture and create unsolicited random happenings which is not very slick. Then again, the gestures can achieve some things quickly and cleverly. The only problem I had with 10.0.01 was sound issues on some videos especially if they were on Facebook. Since technology has been buggy now for a while, no matter what you use, I wasn’t particularly bothered. My life will not collapse because I can’t hear a video. Other than that I thought 10 was really smooth and looked good. I felt like it was an upgrade. 10.0.02 came hot on the heals of 10.0.01 because some people had had some issues with it. It had interfered with  phone  functionality in particular. On my iPad Air  with 10.0.02 nothing much has changed other than now Flipboard won’t slide properly onto the next screen when I am reading an article. It also takes longer to load the magazines. It will get fixed eventually and all will be well. I have different devices and so if one isn’t working I use another. The real problem occurs when the device is critical to your way of life or work and it is not functioning. I always have a spare phone or computer  but if I had a device which was specifically set up for my life or work then I would find the bugginess of everything more than frustrating. MacWorld UK has a good review of iOS 10.

Offtime app

The Offtime app might be worth exploring if you are trying to find the elusive work-life balance and find your phone distracts you. It is free but there are in app purchases which you might want to explore before you download the app. Basically, you can turn your phone off for a certain amount of time but can allow certain people to contact you in that time. It’s an app from Germany  and has been around for about 3 years now. Tech Crunch has a comprehensive review of it here. You can download it here. It has had sound reviews across the net and is probably worth at least considering . The official Offtime site explains it all very clearly. The iPhone version appears to be paid and not as versatile as the Android version.

iPhone/iPad tips and tricks

sakitech speaks clearly, explains effectively and shows you carefully how you can make good use of your iPhone/iPad. Some people are sometimes just waiting for the next iOS and never really explore the one they have. Apple is very good on the “hidden” secrets so that if you take the time to learn the iOS you really do get some very efficient  functionality.

Still feeling insecure about ICT?

1.TeacherCast is a very good site to be familar with and to occasionally take the time to browse. It comes up with so many practical ideas not the least of which is this video about what to do with Google in your classroom. It helps you imagine other things when you watch a video like this.

2. Our government also has a useful internet site to help you get the best out of the internet at internetbasics

3. Goodwill community foundation has free tutorials, lessons and materials to help you feel really comfortable with technology in all its forms.

4.For things iPhone and iPad then visit the site ipodiphoneitunestutorials which will walk you around all the things you need to know.

5. Snapchat, anyone? Heard about it and don’t know whether it’s for you? There is a humourous but very helpful LinkedIn slide presentation by Todd Brison. If nothing else you will know what it’s about and know how to approach it.

Close apps in iOS 9

Easy when you know how!

1. Double click Home button – or on an iPad you can 5 finger swipe up – to get the taskbar.

People are used to holding their finger on the icons until they wiggle and then using the little black cross top left to close the app. Not in iOS 9.

2. You will now see a series of open screenshots of apps you have been using. Slide them up with you thumb as in the video or, if you are like me and don’t have good use of your thumbs, hold your finger on the open image and slide it up.
